How do hackers gain access?

There are many ways a hacker can access a Facebook account. Sometimes they just create another account profile and pretend to be a different person. But sometimes they get the password.

Some hackers create fake websites that look and appear like Facebook. Then they send an email to the account owner asking them to change their password. When the recipient clicks the link in the email, they are taken to the hacker’s fake website and asked for their current Facebook account password. Then they use the information to gain access.
